Primer Dugout (and link of the day) 10-14-2020

Pittsburgh Gazette Times, October 14, 1920:

Cleveland paid tribute to its world champion baseball team in a public demonstration in Wade Park, attended by approximately 50,000 persons. So great was the enthusiasm of the mob that it finally became uncontrollable and broke through ropes marking off the stage where city officials and the Cleveland players sat, smashed chairs, pushed several persons into a small lake and vocally and physically expressed its joy over the winners of the world’s series.

Special details of police were powerless aqnd not until long after the lights had been put out and ball players had left did the celebration end.

Heck, I’m overjoyed 100 years later.
